Re: what are the symptons of a weak kidney

What do you mean by "weak"? Do you mean damaged? Basically, there aren't any signs until there is a significant problem. Things to check on are blood pressure and keeping diabetes in control if you have it. Swelling is another common symptom of kidney problems.

Chronic Kidney Disease Symptoms

The kidneys are remarkable in their ability to compensate for problems in their function. That is why chronic kidney disease may progress without symptoms for a long time until only very minimal kidney function is left.

Because the kidneys perform so many functions for the body, kidney disease can affect the body in a large number of different ways. Symptoms vary greatly. Several different body systems may be affected. Notably, most patients have no decrease in urine output even with very advanced chronic kidney disease.

* Fatigue and weakness (from anemia or accumulation of waste products in the body)

* Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting

* Need to urinate frequently, especially at night

* Swelling of the legs and puffiness around the eyes (fluid retention)

* Itching, easy bruising, and pale skin (from anemia)

* Headaches, numbness in the feet or hands (peripheral neuropathy), disturbed sleep, altered mental status (encephalopathy from the accumulation of waste products or uremic poisons), and restless legs syndrome

* High blood pressure, chest pain due to pericarditis (inflammation around the heart)

* Shortness of breath from fluid in lungs

* Bleeding (poor blood clotting)

* Bone pain and fractures

* Decreased sexual interest and erectile dysfunction
